Trail Updates

Spring/Summer 2018

  • Final Phase Trail Paving
    The final phase of the Rail Trail will be paved by the end of Summer 2018. A contract was awarded in May 2018 for construction of this project.
  • Slingerlands Trail Head
    Designs are being finalized to incorporate the public’s opinion on the final plan for the Slingerlands Trail Head. This will include more accessible parking and trail amenities to welcome and inform Rail Trail guests of all the trail has to offer. Plans for the properties at this location are still under review and we welcome comments from the public on their future use.
  • Bicycle Racks
    Through a partnership with CDTC, CDTA, and CDPHP bicycles are now available to rent at the South Pearl entrance of the Rail Trail. Visit to find out more about renting bicycles on the trail.
